I had this doll, I remember I took him with me when I had my tonsils removed. I tucked him under the blanket with me when I went in, he helped me through the surgery.

Steve and Bob were pretty cool I have to say. Had the Jeep, fire-tower, and other accessories. i remember the tower became a parking lot for my Matchbox cars later on...

I had one of these as a kid... along with his camping set I think. One day I accidentally broke his head off (It wasn't intentional, he just wasn't particularly well made..), so my dad glued it back on, and all was good, except Steve now had this huge mutant gluey neck... I didn't care though, I played with it all the time anyways.
He kinda fell by the wayside when Star Wars action figures came out, but we had some good times :P

In response to last post, His name is ZORAK. He is the one and only enemy of the Big Jim wolfpack team. He has a burgundy cape with a gold chain, black pants, black boots, no shirt, and a cool molded on brown hood that hides his rotating flesh to angry green face. Toys were soooo cool back then!

I got the Steve Scout right about the time I became a Cub Scout.
I also remember the Big Jim PACK figures noted by another post here!
There is another figure I had that I can't remember maybe someone here can help- he had a head that when you pressed a button, it would quickly rotate from a kind face to an angry face....anyone know?

I had just about all the stuff that went with the scouts, but never played with the actual figures. I used all the stuff with my Big Jim wolfpack guys!(now that was a rowdy bunch of shady fellows!) I can say that everything but the figures had AWESOME play value in a time when kids were REQUIRED to have an imagination. Over the last 10 years, I have went back and purchased most every action figure from the early 70's, and I currently have all of the scouts in a showcase sandwiched between Six million dollar man Maskatron and my Mego superheroes!

I remember carrying my Steve Scout and accesories out into the back yard and sitting under a shade tree. I had the Steve Scout camp set which included a tent, a plastic campfire, a cot, and some pots, pans, and a cup. I think I even had a Steve Scout canoe! Good stuff. I'm amazed when people say that they don't remember Steve Scout. Heck, I thought everybody had one!

I had a Steve Scout once the most fun I ever had with him was covering him in modeling glue, setting him on fire and tossing him out my bedroom window. Of course he screamed the entire way down. I don't recall doing much with him after that.

I remember, Steve Scout, Kamart, 4.99, my mom said he's cheaper than barbie, so oh boy he was mine!I hated him at first he was to small, till I teamed him up with a mego dorthy and wah-la a match made in heaven, he became a sexy 6 foot french millionair and she a starving artist "whoe it was hot"....yeah I was pent up at 12.

One of the best toys of the '70's was Steve Scout. I got mine as a gift from my parents on their trip to Las Vegas. I got the doll and all the accessories, along with the vehicle. It was nicely made and was around for a few months. My little brother once again made mince meat of it.

I had a song I made up about him:
Steve Scout! Steve Scout! Went to fish in a pumpkin dish Came up with a dying fish. Steve Scout! Steve Scout!
The double use of "fish" is not very good, but I don't think it troubled me too much at age 5 or 6 or whatever. Now, at age 34, I find "pumpkin dish" even more troubling. WTF?
Years later, my parents refused to let me join the Cub Scouts. Oddly, they deny this, like so many of my other memories. (I swear, you said I could have the car when I went to college. Why would I make up something like that?)

How FREAKING GAY was this thing. Big Jim, Evel, Steve Austin, kicked this guys butt all over the place. I remember wanting it for some reason. Thank God my parents did not get it for me. I could have never lived it down.
P.S. No, Im not politically correct either. I did say GAY. I dont care....

I heard that Steve Scout grew up and became a 3rd. grade elementary school teacher at an exclusive all-boys school in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I didn't have one, but would have loved one. He would have made a perfect date for Skipper in his handsome scout uniform. She was too young for Ken and god forbid her mother would have never let her go out with GI Joe, I mean please, he was a man with a beard and a scar.

I can't believe it! I had this wretched thing! Worst toy of my childhood! I spent my entire allowance on it as well as its hang glider accessory (which actually flew). The first time I sent the thing flying and it hit the ground, the doll popped apart. I couldn't take it back because it was a clearance item. Now I know why. Great site, by the way!

No, no, no, no, no, no!! No cool powers, no cool vehicle, nothing to fire the imagination beyond what we experience in real-life scouting. Now, If there had been an EVIL arch-enemy scout with a robotic arm, a death ray and a merit badge for terror, then they might've had me.
